Follow my favourite ways to keep cosy in bed for less . . . 

LIGHT IT UP: Getting the right lighting in a room can make all the difference.

I’m a fan of the Ferris wood-effect table lamp, on offer at dunelm.com for £6.40, down from £8.

I also like their Moroccan lantern cream table lamp, £12, down from £15.

SAVE: £3 on Moroccan lamp

DESIGNER DUPES: My go-to hack for feeling cosy inside is to light a candle.

It’s surprising how well it works.

#I like Yankee Candle’s spiced orange candle, £8.54 at candlesdirect.com.

But I was pleased to discover Aldi selling an orange spice candle jar for £2.99.

I can barely tell the difference.

SAVE: £5.55

WRAPPED UP: Snuggling up in a blanket will leave you feeling snug for sure.

The navy supersoft throw from wilko.com is just £10 — that’s cheaper than the extra-large blue throw sold at Primark for £12.

Plus, there’s room for further savings at Wilko, with up to 50 per cent off selected throws.

SAVE: £2

HEATING HACKS: There’s been a rise in sales of heated blankets and I can see why.

They’re great but can be expensive.

I found the Status kingsize electric blanket on offer at currys.co.uk for £22.99, reduced from £29.99.

If you are after something smaller, the Silentnight comfort control electric blanket is £22 at very.co.uk, or just £20 on Amazon.

SAVE: £7 at Currys

OLD SCHOOL: Sometimes traditional is best and you can’t knock a hot water bottle when it comes to keeping toasty.

I like the Superdrug long hot water bottle for £11.99.

It keeps my entire body warm.

You could also buy the Nivea wonderful warmer gift set.

It’s down to £7.50 from £20 and comes with a cosy hot water bottle, plus some pamper essentials.

That’s a real win, win.

SAVE: £12.50 on gift set
